Debit accounts are on a per-transaction basis. A ten dollar ($10 USD) deposit is required. We deduct one dollar ($1.00) per transaction.
Blank pages are not scanned. Emails to the inmate are limited to a maximum of 8 pages front/back. Photos count as one page, and may be included with letters on both the Unlimited and Debit Plans at no extra cost.
